    For one evening, Carleton's Site-Specific Media class presented an outside projection show. The glow from the projectors lit up the area, inviting those passing by to stop and stare. This event presented to viewers a new way of taking art and video out of the gallery and theater and into a new space.

    Perspectives from Abroad

    December 6, 2010

    The possibilities for study abroad at Carleton are nearly endless. There are twenty Carleton programs around the world, but if we don't have a program that's studying what you're interested in at the location you want to go to, there are also plenty of non-Carleton options. On average, 70% of each graduating class will study abroad, which means that there is an incredibly broad range of experiences.

    November 30, 2010

    One of the reasons I came to Carleton was to get to take classes from so many fantastic professors, but some learning experiences can only be had off-campus. Studying abroad in Osaka, Japan, I get a weekend lesson from a mountain I now call "Fuji Sensei."

    Lots of love (and safe travels home)

    November 22, 2010

    Ask a Carleton student how s/he's doing right now and you'll probably hear, "Eh, it's tenth week."  That means finals, and all the attending stress.  But don't be fooled: studying is an important part of 10th week, but only a part.  Here are some highs and some lows, as reported by students themselves.
